I woke up Friday morning with a bad headache and by 8:30 I knew I wasn’t going to the quilt group – I wasn’t even out of my pj’s yet! But happy to report the headache was gone later in the day and I was able to get moving around and do some quilting! I don’t really try that hard to get to Friday morning quilting anymore – usually only 4 or 5 of us show up and sometimes I am the only one that even brings something to work on that is related to quilting – what kind of quilt group is that I’m not really that close with any of the women that go to the morning group. More and more I think instead of going every Friday morning I might trim this one down to every other week and start to try to remember to go to the first Thursday night of the month group instead– different group of people (although I am not really close to any of them either!). – I think I am not a group person LOL.
This is what yesterday looked like once again: off and on rain – at least it was more off than on.
More binding was stitched on Patchwork of the Crosses but I didn’t really work on it all that much – almost done with two sides.
Sunny Days is coming along! Still a bit of work to do but no mishaps – just never feel like sitting at the machine for more than 20 to 30 minutes at a time. I think I have about 5 more strips to do going down and then I need to do the strips at the top and bottom – shown sideways in this photo. This quilt is feel very soft and cuddly – I think this is going to be the first machine quilted quilt that I will be really happy with if it continues this way.
This is the area I quilted Thursday night on “Insanity Revisited” I’m pleased with the triangles – simple but yet fills the space. Some of these blocks/triangles have so many pieces in them that it is hard to design what to quilt until I get into the area – each block/triangle will be quilted to suit the design. I put in plenty of quilting as there are so many pieces you never know if something well fray and this way it will stay together until I can fix it LOL.
This is the next area to work on. I don’t know if I will stick to the same type of schedule that I actually stuck to with POTC – I spent the last almost 4 months quilting more than piecing and there are projects to get finished that haven’t had a lot of work put into them since last year and there are more projects that I want to get started on – somehow I just never spend much day time hours sewing and do more of that in the evening. I tend to do more machine work off and on in the daytime so that explains the little bit of progress on Sunny Days! Binding is being stitched with the watching/listening to the dreadable evening news.
When do you do most of your sewing? I used to watch more tv then I do now and find I sewed more then in the daytime – I don’t like listening to books – I need to read them (I tend to flip back and forth a lot when reading and can never find the right place on audio) and I don’t just sit and listen to music while I sew. I have gone through so many series on Netflix that I am at a lost at what to watch next while I quilt in the evening.
